Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

Our microwave oven fan, light and turntable won't turn off. I have to turn off the circuit breaker to shut off the oven. This problem has occurred a couple of times in the past 2 years. Before, when I turned off the circuit breaker for a day the problem went away. Now, after a week the problem persists.

Sorry but i think you will need to take it to local repairman because inside is a relay and the contacts in this relay have arched across and stuck the contacts together .Iam not familar with type of model which is why i cannot tell you where it is located ,but if you follow the feed wires you will find it ,also the other cause of this is because in europe we use 240v which means that the amperage used although the same is carried at a higher voltage which causes less arching of the electric in the contacts compared to 110v .

Turntable and light won't shut off.

The common cause is one or more bad door switches, or possibily the keypad control board.

The turntable and light won't shut off when not in use

The door switch, one or more are a common problem, or the keypad control board, "less likely"

The microwave won't stop.

You probably have a bad door switch or door switch mount. See this file.

jamison665 was you using the microwave when this happened? Reason I ask is that all microwaves over the range have a temp sensor so if you are using the cooktop and don't have the vent fan on the OTR running, it will turn on the fan if it gets to hot. Once this cools off, the fan will quit running. When this happens, it is only the fan that is running. I think this may be it since the turntable will rotate when the mircowave cooking section is in use.

Model # 80419: turntable and hood lamps inoperable

We see this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

Details of our service and critical safety information and disassembly information is at our site, linked here on Fixya:
